Go Back Report # 208

 UNDATED - 5              MISSING WATER      
Prior to March 1991     

NOTE: To date, I have no cases in my files where a UFO has been seen drawing water from a water tower, water tank or swimming pool. It would be speculative to suggest that a UFO drew water from these storage areas when no UFO was seen in the vicinity, and even when a UFO was seen, it would not necessarily imply that it was responsible for the loss of the water. However, given the rapid emptying of these large storage facilities, it is still worth recording these cases for possible future file use. (CF)            

Case N° 33: the Empty Water Tank            

The witness in this case did not want to be identified
although I know himwell and can vouch for its authenticity.  

     The witness lived on a small-holding in the Valley of a Thousand Hills, in Natal, South Africa. He and his wife had a small house on the property where his daughter bred horses. One morning she arrived at breakfast time and asked her father if he would fill the water tank which stood on struts, as it was nearly empty.        
     The tank was made of corrugated iron and ran into a trough for the horses. There was a ladder up the side which the witness climbed up to ascertain that the tank was full after he had run water into it.      
     The following morning his
daughter turned up again and accused her father of not attending to her request. He protested. The tank was empty, she told him. He could not believe her as he personally noted its fullness the day before. But upon examination of the tank, it was true: there was no water there.     
     The witness examined the ground below the tank and also the tank itself to see if there were any visible cracks. The ground was bone dry and there were no discernible leaks. He called in an engineering friend to check the tank out, but this man could find nothing wrong.   
     About two days later, the witness learned that there had been some UFO activity in the area on the night in question, at least that strange lights had been seen in the sky.
